|Photo by recipe author|
Servings: One loaf
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
- 1 cup sugar (or to taste)
- 1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups mashed bananas (5-6 medium)
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 2/3 cups soft whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans)
- 1 cup shredded coconut
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottoms only of one loaf pan (or other baking dish) with extra coconut oil and set aside.
Mix sugar and coconut oil until blended. Add in the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each one. Add the bananas and water; then after that is blended, add in the rest of the ingredients except nuts and coconut just until moistened. Stir in nuts and coconut, then pour into the loaf pan.
Bake until toothpick or a knife inserted in the middle of loaf comes out clean, about one hour. Let it cool for about five minutes; remove from pans to wire rack and cool completely before slicing.
